Housed inside an innovative casing, the SMX-30 is actually two microphones packaged into one. The stereo microphone is positioned at the top and consists of 2 cardioid polar pattern microphone elements spaced apart at a 120º angle for capturing a natural sounding stereo image.
The mono microphone uses a super-cardioid polar pattern to focus on sound in front of the camera and is equipped with the same high-quality element as Azden's SGM-250 shotgun microphone to record broadcast quality sound. The audio controls on DSLR cameras are limited, if they exist at all. And DSLRs are notoriously known to have low-quality microphone preamps that add noise to the video soundtrack when the gain is turned up. That's why Azden designed the SMX-30 with a +20dB gain booster; so you can get a strong, clean audio signal into your camera, minimizing the need to turn up the noisy preamp.Also included is a -10dB pad to protect against distortion when recording in loud environments such as live concerts and motorsport events. The SMX-30 has a wide frequency response ranging from 40Hz to 20kHz, so the audio you capture will sound full and natural. Additionally, a low-cut filter switch is included for reducing the level of low frequencies below 120Hz, which is especially useful for mitigating noise caused by air conditioners, wind and traffic. The SMX-30 is powered by two AA batteries; a lower cost option than the 9V battery that is used in some competitor microphones.
The SMX-30 can achieve 24 hours of operation with a single set of - Stereo and mono recording modes with 10db, 0db, +20db level adjustments - Low noise, high sensitivity, wide frequency response shotgun mic with 3.5mm stereo minijack output - Custom, detachable foam windscreen - Integrated shock absorbing shoe mount with 1/420 thread - Operates on (2) aa batteries with indicator led light.
